    Hi all,

    Is there an intent-filter that tells me if a USB-keyboard is connected?

    I found this, but does not say that it is a USB keyboard.

    Now I know how to do that.
    For me, it's enough!
    If StartingIntent.Action="android.hardware.usb.action.USB_DEVICE_ATTACHED" Then
    ToastMessageShow("USB_DEVICE_ATTACHED:" & StartingIntent.GetExtra("mManufacturerName"), True)
    Else If StartingIntent.Action="android.hardware.usb.action.USB_DEVICE_DETACHED" Then
    ToastMessageShow("USB_DEVICE_DETACHED:" & StartingIntent.GetExtra("mManufacturerName"), True)
    End If

    Log("USB_DEVICE_DETACHED:" & StartingIntent.ExtrasToString))
    The line shows approximately:
    and this line
    Log(StartingIntent.GetExtra("mManufacturerName")) -> null
    How can I get the "mManufacturerName" ?
